Prager H2: My Favorite Philosopher

Prager H2: Anita Dunn, the White House Communications Director, the one who started the Fox News feud, told a graduating class of high school students that Mao is one her favorite philosophers.

When it turns out that she’s a fraud, the shoppers riot. This says a lot about our entitlement culture… The “Balloon Boy” saga took over the news for two hours yesterday.

Hard to find any. Maybe we’re cooling.
